I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S GT I 9000 to Android 2.2 yesterday...but I just can't open my messages...it says Force Close every time I try...any solutions??

If not, how can I downgrade to the original 2.1 Eclair?


Try clearing the cache of the Messaging app.

From the home screen:

Menu | Settings | Applications | Manage applications | All | Messaging | Clear cache

If that doesn't work, I'd try the following, in this order:

  1. Force Stop
  2. Restart the phone (off then on)
  3. Clear data (will likely lose your SMS messages)

  • Well, you can try "Clear data" but that will probably dump all of your messages. Have you power-cycled the phone? – ale Dec 22 '10 at 15:59

    A last final resort would be to do a factory reset of the phone. You would, however, lose all data and applications in the process. – Bryan Denny Dec 22 '10 at 19:50
